Critic Reviews for Devilman Crybaby Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Masaaki Yuasa's contemporary reprise of Akira Fudo and Ryo Asuka's "love" story is as orgiastically violent and unflinchingly risqué as Nagai's original manga, a fitting tribute to both the creator's oeuvre and the character's storied legacy.

Devilman Crybaby is certainly not suitable for all viewers, but is one of the rare graphic action anime that has an incredible story to back up its fantastic animation.

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

It moves from jawdropping to heartbreaking at a moment's notice, but it never strays from being unforgettable.

Jan 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Ultra-violence and heavy themes may not sound all that enticing, but the series also has its lighter moments, thanks to an offbeat sense of humor that's made Yuasa a fan favorite.

Jan 18, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Can be a difficult watch for Americans, especially if they've never heard of the Devilman franchise before. But it would be a waste to ignore such a gorgeous, disturbing series.

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Days into 2018, Netflix has released an audacious, unique show that could go down as one of the year's best.

Jan 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Above all, Devilman: Crybaby is visually enthralling, even when you put aside what's being depicted.

Jan 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Ultra-violent animated series is way too intense for kids.

Audience Reviews for Devilman Crybaby: Season 1

    The chemistry between akria and fudo is beautiful
  • Aug 09, 2019
    Tried to watch the first few episodes, couldn't get into it. Gritty, edgy, and needlessly gorey. The intro where he becomes a demon was like something out of Akira on acid except it made no sense. The main character was a twerp and the other guy who tries to make him a demon is just an unlikeable homicidal sociopath. And then the next episode we're expected to believe they're still friends and he's not a bad guy? No; I'm done after less than two episodes.

    devil man cry baby has very good plot twist that shocked me. It might have alot of nudity but has a really good story and shows how horrible we can be. I recommend this show to everyone it is a very entertaining show.

    Devilman Crybaby is an amazing anime. Although that its audience most likely won't receive a season two and is rather short for what it is, we still get great character development, amazing action scenes and animation. Also, having Akira be possessed by the strongest and most evil demon in their universe but have his heart and soul still intact, having being the most human character in the series is an extraordinary move on the directors part.

    Devilman Crybaby aspires to do what many others could not do. That is portray Humanity in such a way that clearly defines both its negative and positive extremes and will leave the viewer in awe for its master-like storytelling.

    In devilmancrybaby if you look further then the naked girls and the sex then you can find a amazing show that brings out lots of problems we have in our society such as that we tend to fit people in to groups or categories that they can't change. This show also has some truly heart breaking moment's and a amazing twist at the end over all very good show i would highly recommend it to any one over 18.

    The animated series for the adult audience does have some really crazy moments, depending on the day and situation one might call it a masterpiece or a piece of garbage. The series plot and storytelling are confusing and dragged out, the show only takes off when half the season is over. The characters never get the chance to be developed. The art is unique, the use of colours gives it a surreal feel, it felt like you are watching something which was created by someone on drugs, some might consider it good, but at least I did not like the creative imaginations. The series got plenty of action sequences but they were terribly shot, too dark or too exploitative. The anime does end with a bang, but by the time you get around to understand what the story was trying to tell it is already over.
  • Mar 11, 2019
    Starts very strong, but the last third and ending are rushed and confusing. As expected from Masaki Yuasa, the artwork is very original, but even there you might get a sense of a bit unfinished work.
  • Feb 18, 2019
    it's definitely a must see series with great BGM and storyboard
  • Oct 10, 2018
    If you have dipped your toes into the rather stagnant pool of Netflix Original anime's, you will know that the bar has not been set very high. However, Devilman Crybaby and it's absolute perfection of blending the dark macabre of human nature with the bliss of humanity's strength, picks the bar up and throws it across the room. With one of the most unique animation styles in the industry as of now and its exploration of microcosmic society; you will need to brace yourself for what truly is, one of the best anime's to grace our screens and binge until completion.
